Healthy Back-to-School Snacks
According to Marilyn Tanner-Blasiar, a dietitian at Washington University School of Medicine, kids’ snacks (except cheese) should have fewer than 200 calories per serving and contain a daily value of 8 percent or less in total fat. These snacks fit the bill.
Free of trans fats and artificial flavorings, these squares, bagged in individual servings, have a big cheese taste that belies their tiny size. With just 130 calories and 4.5 grams of fat, they’re a smart pick, too.
To buy: $4 for eight 1-ounce bags, at supermarkets.
